    I've the attached table structure & data.

    From which I have a list of screen Ids from tbl_screen, and would like to get a list of users assigned, their privilege & access
    e.g
    Get the digits from the ID Student.mod.456.std in tbl_screen
    this digit is prefixed with @ and added in tbl_user field user_screen @456
    then get which rights is attached to this users (tbl_user & tbl_user_rights id)
    then get the action priviledge from tbl_user_access
